The Laughter Saves Lives Comedy Tour and Foundation was founded by retired FDNY member John Larocchia after 21 years on the job, retiring in 2008. The Tour's/Foundation’s goal is to raise money for worthy charities as a way to never forget his co-workers lost on 9/11/01.Many of the charities the tour supports are related, but not limited to Police, Firefighters, EMS and Military in the areas we will visit. The tour has been to Colorado and Columbus Ohio as well as local shows in Long Island, New Jersey and Connecticut. Next year we are working on shows in California, Virginia and Upstate NY.
50% of the proceeds from this benefit will be donated to Friends of Firefighters to assist them with members affected by Hurricane Sandy.
